Engineer/mixer Dave Rideau (left), Al Jarreau (center) and producer Boney James are pictured at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, Calif., where they are tracking drums and percussion for Jarreau's new project on the Concord label: a tribute to the late, great George Duke. In the photo, the three are admiring Rideau's latest equipment acquisition, a PMC twotwo.6 reference monitor with ATL bass loading technology and offering dual Class-D amplification and a powerful DSP engine controlling driver response, crossover and EQ.

"Its all about the PMC twotwo.6," Rideau says. "I have new speakers for my mix room and I decided to take them out on the town. We are all obviously happy with what we are hearing!"
